Beware of the copies, here is the original!
For it’s 9th season in Europe, Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks 2012 kicked off in June and is stopping in 15 locations this spring and summer from Portugal to Finland, covering almost every European country.
There are 3 divisions to choose from: an Open division with cash prizes, a 14 and under and a 15 and over categories, and as every season, these contests are entirely free, with free entry, free food, free drinks and tons of prizes!
This year, the top 5 of each category at each contest will qualify to the European WITP Championships on the 6th of October in Spain (location TBC), with a 6000€ prize purse, a spot to compete at the 2013 Amsterdamn Am and million more prizes to win.
The European WITP Championships is an outstanding event that gathers skaters from so many different areas but also puts together some of the top European skaters with local heroes and up and coming talents who are entering their first “international competition”
The Wild in the Parks was born when we noticed something needed to change in the skateboard contest scene. We decided to take a different path, a road less traveled, and offer something new and entirely different. We came up with an event format that alleviates both stress and boredom while increasing involvement.
The Wild in the Parks is for young up and coming skaters to come out and show their skills.
Think of the event like three best trick contests; skaters are judged on the tricks they pull in three separate park “zones”, never on their bails. Wild in the Parks is about giving back to the skaters. With this in mind, the series is entirely free for competitors.
There is a free BBQ lunch and absolutely no entry fees, so anyone can sign up to compete in one of the three divisions: 14 and under, 15 and over and Open. Everyone entering gets a free tee shirt and at least the top 5 skaters from the 14 – and 15 + divisions go home with loads of prizes while the Open division winners receive prizes as well as cold hard cash and the outstanding lil’monkey (10 years old and under) will get a special prize.
Top 5 of each category also receive invites to this year’s European WITP Championships going down in Spain Sat October 6.
The Wild in the Parks is a great environment for everyone to hang out, eat some free food, skate, support their friends, and go home with a ton of free prizes!
